A visit to the hairdresser always makes me want to get a load of new toys for my hair and this time I had the perfect excuse. The colour that Amelia at Russell Eaton in Leeds put on for me was semi-permanent, and as I wash my hair every day I asked what she suggested I use to keep my colour fresh for as long as possible.
Amelia pointed me in the direction of this duo - Wella SP Colour Save shampoo and conditioner. These are really creamy and luxurious to use and as you don't need to use a lot to get a good lather, they should last for ages.
And so to styling. I'm a sucker for packaging and I couldn't resist this cool trigger action spray when I was looking for a product to help volumised my newly coloured locks. The Volume Heat Styling spray from Elnett by L'Oreal certainly does a a good job of keeping my hair both silky smooth and big & bouncy and it smells deee-vine!!! Mr. Forcella thought I had got a new perfume. I would wear this scent as a perfume.
Finally, after a bit of GHD-ing, a good old spritz of L'Oreal Elnett Satin hairspray keeps everything in place. All the glossy mags rave about this product and I have to say that I've not found a hairspray that works better - a strong hold and no stickiness or hard bits. I don't like the perfumey smell of the original version, however, so I use the one in the white bottle which is fragrance free.
I have, however, found a down side to Happy Hair Days - all the hair swishing and admiring myself in shop windows means it takes me a really long time to get into work in the mornings!!
